Yabuli Sunshine Ski Resort in Harbin -- the most popular of its kind in the Northeast China region – reopened to the public on March 14, after a one and a half-month suspension due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, according to jubilant local officials .
The resort, affiliated with the Heilongjiang Provincial Sports Bureau and Yaxue Tourism Group CO Ski Resort, is said to be the birthplace of China's mass skiing tourism industry.

It announced on March 14 that it was temporarily opening some ski runs and limiting daily visitors to 1,000 people.
Rooms provided to tourists at the Yabuluoni Hotel are limited to 20 per day and the affiliated Sunshine Restaurant only provides package services, to avoid people gathering and the risk of potential cross virus infection.
Meanwhile, the ski report is only accepting bookings from people in areas with a low virus risk; those from areas with medium risk or above still need to wait a further loosening of regulations.
According to the interim measures, tourists need to purchase ski resort tickets online 24 hours in advance to make a reservation.
When entering the resort, tourists must wear a mask, show their ID card and the Longjiang Health Code, and receive a body temperature check.
